motherhood, day 7

My post-dural headache is GONE. Thank gods.

I have taken two showers and brushed my hair twice in my son's lifetime.

Aiden has a belly button!

Secret of motherhood #37: nursing HURTS. Much like shoving white-hot spikes through my nipples would, I imagine. I've been assured that my technique is fine and the pain will go away, but it may be a week or so. So I've been introduced to the wonders of the breast pump to give my poor nipples the occasional break.

I'm actually getting plenty of sleep. There's just something wrong about that....

And finally, there is a finite, non-zero chance that there will be a six-and-a-half-day-old baby at Mass this evening :)
